Jon Langford’s Four Lost Souls | |
Jon Langford has led an enviable life. He’s a founding member of bands like the Mekons and the Waco Brothers, a visual artist with commissions ranging from Dogfish Head Brewery to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, a radio host, an activist, a playwright… We could go on and on.
Now Langford is preparing to release a new solo album, Four Lost Souls. The album came about after a chance encounter between Langford and bassist Norbert Putnam at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame, where Langford was commissioned to provide portraits for the “Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City” exhibit in 2015. Putnam invited Langford down to Muscle Shoals to record at Nutthouse Studio, and Four Lost Souls was born. ‘Nodepression.com’
